Powerball Jackpot Could Break The $1.58 Billion Record

The fourth-largest lottery jackpot in U.S. history could soar to the largest ever if no one wins the jackpot in Wednesday night's Powerball drawing.

The fourth-largest lottery jackpot in U.S. history could soar to the biggest one yet if no one wins the estimated $1.2 billion jackpot in Wednesday night’s Powerball drawing.

The winning numbers for the Oct. 31 Powerball jackpot, were: 13, 19, 36, 39 and 59 and the Red Powerball is 13 .

The Power Play was 3x.

The jackpot climbed to $1.2 billion after no one matched all six numbers to win the jackpot. That makes 38 consecutive draws without a jackpot winner since the last person won the big prize on Aug. 3.

For the Monday night drawing, there were 131.6 million Powerball plays sold, according to Anna Domoto, a spokeswoman for the Multi-State Lottery Association, which oversees the game.

That amounted to 36.3% of all possible number combinations being covered, as millions of players picked the same numbers.

That’s a ton, but considering the odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 292.2 million, which means about 186 million number combinations weren’t covered.

Powerball jackpots start at $20 million and roll until the jackpot is won. Players win by matching the five white ball numbers (1-69) and the Power Ball number (1-26). The overall odds of winning a prize in the game are approximately 1-in-24.87. 

Players can purchase tickets at any of the more than 13,000 Lottery retailers across the state for the chance to become Florida’s newest multi-millionaire.

Players are reminded to sign the back of their tickets at the time of purchase and keep them in a safe place.

Powerball is played in 45 states, as well as Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
